Pros

Work schedules and locations can be flexible. Coworkers are very helpful - if the person you asked doesn't know the answer, s/he will often help you find someone that does know the answer. Initial product training gives good exposure to the product.

Cons

Company doesn't promote new positions to employees first. The way to know if positions are coming open is to monitor LinkedIn. Cross country travel isn't factored into work schedules.

Advice to Management

Give existing employees a chance to move up / around. Factor crazy travel times into expected billing.

    Great technology, but company cannot get out of it's own way.

    Pros

    it's a great technology, and is recognized as such in the industry.

    Cons

    Does not treat employees well; Mediocre comp; Led too much to the whims of Michael Saylor (The stock symbol is not MSTR by accident!) Everybody at corporate has been there forever - single mindset and not very dynamic.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees better; Lose the mercenary sales team mentality.

    Pros

    Moved forward by hiring industry experts to sell BI to the C-level executives in verticals, but then brought in an SVP in Sales who completely destroyed the positive momentum in new account acquisition.

    Cons

    Getting rid of your Industry solutions division was a big mistake. Horrible senior mismanagement...lack of vision, inability to stay focused and on course.

    Advice to Management

    Look to your business partners to get an understanding on why and how they retain their most valuable senior executives.
